21 Things To Do Before 25: Part Three

21 Things To Do Before 25 | A somewhat realistic list of things I'd like to do before I turn 25. Take a look over on the blog. My three part series is finally coming to a close! I'm a big "list person," whether it be to do, grocery, school anything you name I've listed. I started this series as a way to express a few short term goals I'd like to accomplish. You can view the other two here.

11. Visit Santorini, Greece.

Currently I'm planning a trip for graduation (April 25, 2015) and Santorini was my first choice. It has been a long time dream of mine since watching Sisterhood of Traveling Pants years ago. I thought it was so beautiful there and the water is amazingly beautiful. I decided on another place that includes beaches, clear waters and drinks! I'll make a post soon!

12. Get a tattoo.

This one is a little tricky because I love large tattoos, but I don't think I'd want a large one on me forever. I'm opting for something dainty and not as visible, but I'm still undecided. Sigh.

13. Try Pho and Korean BBQ.

I've been known to always try new things and these two have been on my mind for a while now. Pho is a Vietnamese soup dish while Korean BBQ is... Korean BBQ. I can only assume that Pho can be compared to a way better version of chicken noodle soup. I've wanted to try Korean BBQ since I watched an episode about it on Food Network. There is this place in the Atlanta area that is widely known for its Korean BBQ. Its pricey, but its expected. There are only a few here in the south.

14. Utilize list, even more.

As I mentioned earlier, I am a lover of lists. Listography is a public space where you can create public or private list about anything. They even have categories, check out my list here.

15. Throw a (fancy) dinner party.

I love hosting events (I guess thats the planner in me). I'm that friend that goes above and beyond for holidays. For Halloween, I made a platter of sweets and small trick or treat buckets for my roommates. I want to host one of those parties with the fancy cheeses, wines and biscotti.

16. Take a trip solo.

Traveling is my thing, if I could do this for a career I would. Don't get me wrong I've taken a few university sponsored trips, but I'd really enjoy traveling outside the country on my own.

17. Go to a ballet.

When I was younger my grandparents would always take me to plays and I really loved them. I took dance classes when I was younger and admired the ballet girls (I took Hip Hop) in the performances. I'd like to see something different, but if you're interested I'd recommend The King and I or the Nutcracker as a first see.

18. Buy stock.

I am a business woman at heart; for that reason and that reason alone I think it would be beneficial for me to purchase stock in a company. If you have no idea what I'm talking about this site sums it up.

19. Open an online store.

I have a lot of ideas, y'all. I'm an avid lover of design and I'd love to do something that hones in on that talent. Who knows, maybe?

20. Be (even more) COURAGEOUS.

I've been contemplating things I want to do to get myself out there, this blog is one of those steps. I want to be more courageous in life: personally and professionally. I'd like to hike one day or even go camping, just things I never thought I would do. I want to go to more networking events, meet more like minded people.

21. Be Happy.

I want that American dream: job security and a home (be that may an apt; a home is a home). I'm not unhappy now, but in the near future when life changes I want to still be able to wake up and smile.
